he's talking about possibly delaying chuck hagel's nomination. and also wayne lapierre. this is very important. because if you look at the profiles of all the people that committed these mass murders in newtown and aurora and across -- virginia tech, they are all hispanic drug gang leaders. and that's exactly what wayne lapierre said in an op-ed that americans need to buy guns because those latin americans are coming to america, and they're going to kill you people. this is who a lot of republicans in congress are thinking about falling off -- don't do it. don't hurt our party anymore. let wayne lapierre go wherever he wants to go. he's going to destroy the party. we're going to talk about the crazy op-ed has horrible for our party's image, horrible for the conservative movement's image, goes against everything ronald reagan stood for. we'll talk about that in a minute. first, breaking news. this is bizarre. the feel-good story of the olympic games involved in possibly murder. >> this was a total jaw-dropper this morning. oscar pistorius, for those people who don't know, is a south a
not dealt with. >> this could be another new problem for some moderate voter, wayne lapierre, he runs the nra. i want to read you a snippet of this op-ed piece. "after hurricane sandy we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia, looters ran wild in south brooklyn." didn't happen. "there was food, water, electricities, hurricanes, tornadoes, riots, terrorists, gangs, lone criminals, these are perils we are sure to face. not just maybes. it's not paranoia to buy a gun, it's survival, responsible behavior and it's time we encourage law-abiding americans to do just that." many including joe scarborough said the op-ed was laced with "racial overtones" among other things. what is wayne lapierre doing for the republican party? >> wayne lapierre is representing his organization. whether he's trying to fold into his organization. >> long identified with the gop. >> there's a difference between the nra and the rnc. he's doing what he's paid to do and representing it. the nice thing the democrats are doing are lopping the two groups together so i do understand that
to play what wayne lapierre said yesterday to the president's state of the union pip wa union. i want to get your rear action on the other side. >> it's not about keeping kids safe at school. that wasn't even mentioned in the president's speech. they only care about their decades-long, decades-old gun control agenda. the president has taken the art of public deception and manipulation to a whole new level. >> if people agree with wayne lapierre and given what the president has said and others who are actual gun owners but who are in favor of, for example, universal background checks, what if anything can be said, in your opinion, at this point to persuade people who believe the president and some others are just waiting to take away their guns? >> may i go? this is why wayne lapierre is just wrong. senator durbin had a hearing on the second amendment this week and he made or one of his witnesses made the point when you talk about cracking down on purchasers, that's a document issue. this is not about the second amendment, not taking away anyone's guns. it's just if you sign a document
at president obama, criticizing comments he made during the state of the union address. wayne lapierre was talking to a national audience and said the president did not talk about keeping children said that school, arguing that he is more interested in taking away the rights of americans. >> the president use the state of the in an address to make an impassioned plea for tougher gun control and many people in the audience were victims of gun violence. >> smoking bans may be lowering the rate of preterm births. researchers in belgium down the risk of preterm births decreased after the introduction of each phase of a public smoking ban. public health experts hope that as more and more countries in europe and around the world about stricter legislation on smoking in public places, the health benefits would start to become evident fairly swiftly. >> a study from england published last month found that the introduction of smoking bans their lead to a swift and dramatic falls in the number of children admitted to hospital suffering as much tax. >> if it is pretty more for everyone. it will g
million last month alone. wayne lapierre referred to some of the president's comments linking the issue of gun violence to the potential impacts on kids as a charade and they have also gone up with their own print ads as well. >> peter alexander at the white house. thanks so much. thanks for the report. >>> meanwhile, in south africa the murder charges against oscar pistorius took another unexpected turn. a bizarre turn as the lead investigator was removed from the case. nbc's reporter joins me now. you can't make this stuff up. tell me what happened. >> reporter: well, this is what happened on this, the third day of bond hearing. now a fourth day and expecting a decision tomorrow or perhaps on monday. today we did hear the closing arguments in this case, though. firstly from oscar pistorius's defense team saying there was no evidence that this was a preplanned killing and they said that the fact that oscar had tried to carry the girlfriend down the stairs out of the home showed that he was trying to save her life but then the prosecution retaliated. they said that this is a violent man
has put out sensible solutions versus wayne lapierre and the nra and wayne lapierre rants that he put out in the "daily caller" yesterday, again focused on the fear that you just talked about, carol. talking about hispanic gangs going crazy. talking about those people in brooklyn after sandy. i mean, it was just a very racist rant that does not do any good for their position. and the reality of it is, carol, the positions -- the proposals that the president has put out are very sensible. there's a quinnipiac poll that came out yesterday that essentially said that 56% of americans, a majority, not a huge majority, but a majority, support bans on assault weapons on and on the high-capacity magazine clips. 92%, carol, support the universal background checks. >> but there's no chance of -- this community leader also says, you can talk about banning assault weapons all you want. but you have to get to the root of the problem. and the problem she says, isn't so much about guns, it's about the gun culture. and the culture of violence. >> i agree. >> especially on the main streets of chicago.
a listen to something that wayne lapierre said last night in salt lake city. take a listen. >> but i've been amazed, just amazed at how rapidly this debate deteriorated from what has proven to work to what has proven to be the political agenda of those bent on attacking the second amendment to our constitution. dianne feinstein herself commented she's had the gun ban legislation in her desk for over a year waiting for the right time to introduce it. really? >> do gun rights activists like yourself still take that guy seriously? >> well, i think that gun rights, people take the second amendment seriously. >> that wasn't the question seriously. do you still take wayne lapierre seriously? is he still an effective spokesman pore gun rights activists like yourself? >> i think that's a question that's really beside the point. the question should be, in my opinion, what can be done that realistically would make a difference in not having these horrible situations like we saw with those children being murdered, and i think it's -- it's three prongs. it is certainly more capability to know wh
and an effective one. >> jim, your latest article is about wayne lapierre's state of the union response. here's part of that. >> we will not be duped by the hypocrisy in the white house or the congress who would deny our right to semiautomatic technology and the magazines we need to defend ourselves and our families. >> it would seem, jim, that no measure of public sentiment can way the nra message. obviously they don't care, right? >> well, i saw that speech as playing to his base, conspiratorial, to put it vaguely. but there are new forces coalescing against them. it's not just president obama who's smart enough and, like susan suggests, knows there will probably be limited gains legislatively in congress. maybe background checks but not much beyond that. but he also knows he's got folks like michael bloomberg getting very serious about going after the nra. in the back yard of that same speech yesterday which was in parts fairly pointed. you've got mayor bloomberg throwing a minimum of $1.5 million into a special congressional race to replace jesse jackson, jr., who pled yesterday. he's spe
. >> exactly, including gun owners. wayne lapierre doesn't speak for these people. he speaks for the manufacturers, the only people to profit since newtown. this is why lindsay graham has been going after chuck hagel, not because he has any moral core beliefs about chuck hagel being bad. lindsay graham is doing this because he knows the tea party dispieses him. >> these people do know the president can't just strike something down in the constitution. >> stephanie: i know. jeff in iowa writes steph back in the '90s the nra supported background checks and then the brady law was passed and the gun industry complained about slumping gun sales so the nra decided they are now opposed to background checks. thank you, jeff. [ applause ] >> they want a national database of mentally ill people but not of gun owners and show id when you vote, but not when you buy a weapon. >> stephanie: exactly. nra president convicted of shooting. david keane bragged this week that his pro-gun agenda would work because guns were cool his son was accused in december 2002 for shoot
in the news. wayne lapierre called the president a hypocrite. i'll hold off on that one. because i want to get to elizabeth warren. i don't know if you guys saw this. did you see this? >> yeah. the s.e.c.? >> i don't know if it's just me. >> mika, was she on the cruise ship yesterday? >> no, but the banking regular -- >> because if she did anything yesterday, i certainly wouldn't have seen it unless she was on the cruise ship. if i were watching cnn. >> let's put it this way. the banking regulators that she was grilling actually wished they were on that cruise ship. and on it for ten more days. >> really? >> yes, after she was done with them. >> wow! i guess i should have switched channels. all right. let's see what happened yesterday. >> this is senator elizabeth warren. pretty comfortable during her debut yesterday on the senate banking committee. she just had a few questions for the nation's bank regulators, direct questions. they couldn't answer. take a look. >> can you identify when you last took the wall street banks to trial? >> i will have to get back to you with the specific informati
